The Nov. 4, 2016, Planning and Urban Development Committee meeting included:
Secondary Suite Development Permit Exemption - Update
The Committee directed Administration to prepare an amending bylaw to the Land Use Bylaw that makes permanent the secondary suite development permit exemption. The Committee further directed Administration to bring forward the amending Bylaw directly to the January Combined Public Hearing of Council and recommended that Council give three readings to the proposed Land Use Bylaw Amendment. The exemption has cut costs and timelines for people who want to create legal and safe suites and is a contributing factor to the 35 percent increase in the number of legal and safe suites constructed over the last 13 months.
